London-based illustrator and designer Laurène Boglio has created work for Little White Lies and Converse but it’s these simple gifs on her blog that caught our eye. They remind me of Nimura Daisuke’s work as Laurène echoes the same cheeky spirit and thick line work.
Where Nimura focuses on whole characters though, it seems Laurène is more interested in the gestures of people, through their hands and the movement of their limbs. There’s obscure undertones to some of her gifs with multiple thumbs appearing on one hand and the repeated paper-cutting of fanned fingers in another animation.
Laurène’s style alters from time to time, sometimes adding in more detail in places or subverting her monochrome colours and drawing the negative, further highlighting the experimental nature of these gifs.
